Usual

I live 30 miles away from this course. I usually play here at least once a week and sometimes twice a week. I wish the rough grass was at least a 1/2 inch shorter so it would not be so difficult to find golf balls hit into the rough. It would help to speed up play as well. This time of the year you have to be in the fairway to get any roll. HELP!!!

A pleasant surprise

Took advantage of a dirt cheap Hot Deal to play this course for the first time. My cousin had played there 7 years ago and was not impressed, but after talking to the pro shop, we decided to give it a try. I'm glad we did - we were impressed with the layout, course conditions and beauty. It's an old style course with wide blue grass fairways, mature oaks , and small greens. The elevation changes are unique to the Chicago area and offer some great views. From the white tees at 6,160 yds it's a good test of your skills. It rained the day before, and we got caught in a 20 min. downpour on the 10th green, but the course drains well, although the traps were wet, only the 16th fairway had standing water. The only drawback is the lack of a driving range, and you better have GPS to find your way to the course. We will be back.

Great secret in the NW suburbs

Great course. Love the elevation changes. Greens were in good shape and rolled pure. Staff was very friendly. Pace was great for a Sunday morning. Will definitely come back.

League Practice

The course played slow today only because there was a group in front of us that was practicing, for their league which started later in the afternoon. So they were hitting multiple balls and trying different shots rather than just playing each hole. That should definitely not be allowed. When I asked them about it they said they were in the league that started at 2:00 and they are allowed to play all day anyway they want.

Very poor mangement

It took nearly 6 hours to play. At the 13th tee there were 4 groups waiting to tee off. The starter did an awful job sending groups off. With the weekend hackers on a course as hilly as this, there should be 10 minutes between tee times instead of the the laughable 8 minutes they feebly try.
The cart girl was doing her business in the middle of fairways and spent way too much time admittedly flirting with the golfers. I don't blame her trying to hustle tips but should learn some golf etiquette.
A terrible experience, NEVER going back.
